1907 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Barker Roi de Belges

In its first few years of production, the Silver Ghost was the best touring car in the world. The very first example, #60551 bodied by Barker Roi de Belges, is the most valuable car in the world.

Built in 1906 before regular production began, it finished some very public durability tests which set the standard for all Rolls-Royces that followed.
